The end of the year is approaching quickly and the obstacles in production and within our teams are unlike any we’ve endured before. We’ve had many challenges in the past 18 months, dealing with closures due to covid exposed staff and suppliers as well as construction delays on our new premises. These challenging times have meant we have had to constantly adapt our approach to many sectors of our business. We’ve had people working remotely where possible and sourced alternate product at our cost to keep producing our products. As much as we try to predict supply of goods, we are often disappointed by suppliers and shipping times. Put simply, we are behind where we thought we would be at this point in time.
At the foundation of our business model, we do not want to disappoint our customers. Unfortunately, the challenges we are facing are caused by issues that are not in our control. Covid has meant we have been shut down, had curfews in place, had to reduce staff numbers based on workspace and had people away when being tested for covid. We also thought we’d be in our new factory by now, which would give us the space we require to produce the allocated caravans, but due to construction industry closures, this has not occurred when we had hoped.
Ultimately, all we can do is be completely transparent in the challenges we are facing to manufacture the amount of product we had been scheduling for, but we will continue to use every possible working opportunity to provide caravans to as many customer as we can.
Please accept our sincere apologies in this unpredictable climate and we will follow up as soon as we can with an update as to our achievable production between now and Christmas.
